how-to-select-and-store-rockmelons

Proper choosing and storing of all kinds of food products is extremely important, because their quality always has notable impact upon your health. This concerns all products that are available on sale these days. Rockmelons are not an exception. Listed below are several recommendations on how to select and store rockmelons properly.

 

To start with, you should check the temperature of a fruit you have decided to buy. This doesn’t mean that you have to know the exact temperature, of course. Just check whether it is cold or warm before making your choice. The thing is that when a rockmelon is cold, it is very difficult to understand and feel the smell coming out of it. By the way, aroma is one of those criteria you should pay attention to when picking the fruit. What you should know is that when the aroma of a rockmelon is too strong, this may be the sign of the fact that it is over-ripe. Obviously, it makes sense to keep looking for another rockmelon in this case. When you sense fragrance, which is pleasant and not too intense, you may be sure that you have made the right choice!

 

Another criterion for you to keep in mind is that a rockmelon has to be of a room temperature so that when you smell the end of it, you could tell how ripe it is. The more distinct the smell of a rockmelon is, the higher the chances that you will buy a ripe and delicious product are. This is the major point you should keep in mind when picking the fruit.

 

When it comes to storing rockmelons, you should remember that this product should be stored under the room temperature until you cut it. Right after you have cut the fruit and eaten a part of it, store it in the fridge. Otherwise, it will be spoiled in a couple of hours already.

 

To get the maximum flavor out of your rockmelon, you should take it out of the fridge for about an hour before eating it. Keep it under the room temperature to let the coldness get out of it and then taste it. This is the best way to feel the fragrance and taste of the product. However, if you wish to extend its shelf life and keep the product for a longer time, storing it in the fridge is the best solution. 

 

Now that you are aware of the recommendations on how to pick and store rockmelons, you are welcome to use this knowledge any time you will shop for the fruit. These simple, but valuable tips will help you make the right choice and enjoy the taste and aroma of the best rockmelon you will pick for your loved ones!
